Andrej Kiska would garner 9.6 percent of votes and Peter Osuský 4 percent. The SITA newswire published the results on Wednesday, July 31. The poll was comprised of 1,083 respondents, foreseeing a 58 percent participation in the vote, while 42 percent respondents did not know yet whether they would go to the ballot boxes or said they would not vote.
